Shimmering, moon-glow colors are everywhere this season from lips to eyes and nails. If you haven’t taken the plunge yet, we will go there together. The moment you spread a milky, silvery shadow over your lids and step back to check yourself out in the mirror, you will thank me. These ethereal shades look good on everyone, and there are so many options out there to explore.
Beam Me Up Polish:
OPI’s sexy Texas Collection offers a super-chic whitish-silver reminiscent of both classic films and Southern belles. Aptly named “I Vant to be A-lone Star,” the $8 bottle will have you staring at your nails with a smile anytime of year. A perfect neutral for the fall transition, this hue will stay in heavy circulation for winter cocktails parties and once the sun comes back to join us next spring.
Starrier than Thou Lipstick:
Think gray lips won’t work on you? Think again. All it takes are two heavily applied layers of this fabulous matte stick in “Chinchilla” from Lime Crime and you will be seeing stars. For best results, keep your eye makeup black yet minimal, and make sure to put a little gloss on those cheeks so you aren’t washed out. Quel heartbreaker!
Great White Eye Shadow:
Bright white shadow is not too space-creature, I promise. Once it’s applied correctly, your eyes open up and glow, your face looks more youthful, and you realize how little makeup you’ll need elsewhere. I really like Buxom’s version because, as promised, it stays put. This “Sheepdog” shimmering white is a great choice.
